I've made minor corrections to SRT subtitle files to fix spelling and syncing. Syncing is fixed by changing the start and/or end time for a particular subtitle. Open the SRT file for Planeta Bur in your favorite text editor. You'll see this:

200
00:21:08,202 --> 00:21:10,356
...and some sort of protuberance here...

201
00:21:14,215 --> 00:21:15,591
I¥ll switch on the outside microphones.

202
00:21:42,593 --> 00:21:46,080
Hear that? What can it be?

If subtitle 200 appears too soon, change 00:21:08,202 to, say 00:21:08,250. If subtitle 202 appears late, change 00:21:42,593 to, say 00:21:42,570. If the subtitle is on the screen too long, lower the second number.

It's all trial and error. You'll be editing this file repeatedly. From what you've said it's going to be a real pain, too. Good luck!
